The Shawangunk Ridge is yours in this Wallkill NY Contemporary house…
This Contemporary house sits on 11.5 acres of land at the base of Millbrook Mountain in the southern part of Minnewaska State Park.
If you’re an avid hiker in the Hudson Valley, you might already know the Millbrook trail as a difficult 7.6-mile round-trip hike with steep sections. Millbrook offers a big pay-off, however, in terms of views, and so does this property. Surrounded by 40,000 acres of state land, this is a prime location for maximum mountain enjoyment.
Also on the property: Not one, not two, not even three, but four pounds are part of this picturesque landscape.
Inside, the three-bedroom, three-bath, three-floor home is spread out over 2,282 square feet, nearly every inch of that bathed in natural sunlight. The first floor is open-concept with floor-to-ceiling windows, stone fireplace, and dining room glass sliders that open onto a deck. Kitchen includes stainless steel appliances and granite countertops.
Not only does this house come with three bedrooms, there are two offices. The master bedroom has its own balcony complete with Millbrook Mountain views.
All three of the baths are marble, one of which includes a Jacuzzi tub.
Another great thing about this house is that it’s energy-efficient and powered by a hydro-electric system. Also includes passive solar and an oversized wood burning stove capable of heating up to 3,000 square feet.
Outbuildings are numerous on this property, and if you’re looking to raise chickens, there’s a coop. There’s also a guest cottage/studio that’s connected to the house by 40 feet of underground tunnel.
We love that this property has embraced its rugged, mountain-y side while remaining close to civilization. New Paltz village is ten minutes from here, and that will put you on the I-87 Thruway less than 90 minutes from NYC.
